YELLOWMAN, AN INTERNATIONAL
SIMULTANEOUS PRESENTATION

DON'T MISS THIS ONE NIGHT ONLY EVENT AT
ZEIDER'S AMERICAN DREAM THEATER

MONDAY, JUNE 19, 2017 - 7:00 P.M.

This year NSU Theatre Company and our Producing Artistic Director, Professor Anthony Stockard have been intived to participate in Project1VOICE's annual international simultaneous event: 1Voice, 1Play, 1Day.

The annual event presents a classic play or musical authored by an African-American artist. This year's selected play, Yellowman will be presented by over 45 theaters, in 3 countries, on the exact same day and includes over 200 coordinated events connected to the play's presentation.

In Yellowman, a finalist for the 2002 Pulitzer Prize in Drama by Dael Orlandersmith, Alma and Eugene have known each other since they were young children. As their friendship blossoms into love, Alma struggles to free herself from her mother’s poverty and alcoholism, while Eugene must contend with the legacy of being "yellow"—lighter-skinned than his brutal and unforgiving father.

We have partnered with our friends at Zeider's American Dream Theater to present the work in there venue in Virgnia Beach, Virginia at 4573 Bank Street in Town Center (across the walkway from the Sandler Center) on Monday, June 19, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. The event is FREE, open to the public and contains adult content and language.
